Although Pip has resigned, there is still a backlog of images that he periodically passes on to me. For a great many artists, painting children, nude or otherwise, was not their main emphasis or they were not especially noted for it. And yet, as a legitimate subject, they were sometimes included in compositions. For pieces that are on-topic for this site but little is known about the artist or work of art, they can be presented as a short post of ‘Random Images’. This will only be for identified pieces. Interesting images of unknown origin will still be posted on the ‘Little Orphan Images’ page.
There is a little information on Friedrich August von Kaulbach (1850–1920), but it appears he was a member of an artistic family.
It turns out that Pip had posted another image by this artist a while ago. Take a look here.
It is my hope that someone might come forward to serve as Random Image Editor-Researcher. The idea is to take backlogged images and check to see if they should be posted like this or be saved as part of a more extensive post. -Ron
